been turned the boat into swiss cheese. realize law enforcement, i'm sure as a group has an understanding that they would like to do everything they can like in any other situation. they would like to give this individual every opportunity to surrender. we need to talk to him. he has information we need. but there are rules of engagement that will suggest if your life is in danger, the life of somebody else do what you have to do. try to take him alive. don't put your life on the line to do it. >> boston p.d. car coming out. vehicles coming and going. we have seen this all night long. here are folks told a half hour before the gunshots it's okay to come out. folk in watertown who were following instructions all day and all day we have been seeing the kids looking at the grown-ups in their lives and the grown-ups were told don't come to the door unless you are certain it's law enforcement. we saw house-to-house searches taking place with law enforcement in military dress. automatic weapons drawn. came to the house. emptied the house of occupants and went in to search it. t
this would issue a statement but that will not happen. they have learned from a federal law enforcement source, at this hour officials are looking for two suspects in the deadly boston marathon terror attack. they are distributing photos of the men to the law enforcement community. however, they are not let releasing the images to the media. one is wearing a backpack and the other appears to have a bag of some kind. earlier today there were multiple reports authorities got this important piece of information from a department store surveillance video near the finish line of the marathon. we go live back to boston, our very own bill hemmer standing by. i understand it, bill, you have seen these photos? >> good evening to you. thanks to my colleague, rick, who you will speak to in a couple minutes on your program here. i have seen the picture and the images, and you can clearly see, you know, the faces of these two persons described in the report rick broke a few hours ago. but with regard to that, sean, you think about theence that wad and was postponed and later cancelled. you think abo
complex. they were screened at off-site facilities so the tests continue and law enforcement sources say they have a person of interest. at the white house, spokesman jay carney says that president obama has been briefed twice on the suspicious letters and offered this update a short time ago. >> the fbi has the lead for determining whether a suspicious powder is a dangerous substance such as ricin and those take place at accredited facilities and take a certain amount of time as the fbi has indicated. you know, these procedures are in place and they're in effect and in operation now and we're in the midst of that process that the fbi is undertaking at this time. >> there's also today security activity here on capitol hill. officials not taking any chances in light of recent activity, both here and also in boston, and a suspicious package was delivered to the office of alabama republican senator richard shelby who was checked out by authorities and told we were given an all clear a short time ago. the bomb squad was sent to the nearby heart center office building. a loud speaker told sen
. you mentioned the amount of law enforcement and the different law enforcement agencies there responding to that. i also want to share with our viewers an alert that has come through from m.i.t.'s emergency alert system. this is from about 30 minutes ago where they are still advising those on the campus of m.i.t. to please remain indoors saying that police have not determined that the campus is safe. that sf in response to a shooting on campus. in that case an m.i.t. police officer was reporting to a response of a disturbance when he was shot. authorities say that he was shot multiple times officials are saying there are no other victims in that shooting, they are still investigating. no arrests have been made. they are pursuing a suspect there. about 4 1/2 miles away from cambridge, where there was another instance of violence there this evening. at least three explosions and several gun shots. we do not have reports of injuries at watertown. when something like this happens, there is a massive law enforcement response at the time that this violence first started. witne
following the interview. if this were to become law, how department in sure they're adequately screen for national security threats? permit togulations confer with the state department to verify the veracity of an applicant's claim. to what extent do they use the authority? are other barriers that prevent this between the agency's? encies? improved theeatly information available from the get go in terms of what data bases are a check box. that source from the beginning when we collect this. with respect to the state department, we have very could relations with the state area which is the credible fear. >> you will check whether that is an accurate statement. >> yes. we do not take it as being valued. bille concern is that this truncates the process. i would just ask you to look at that. student visao the fraud. this is something i have been interested in since 9/11 when there was a lot of it in the country. schools goingked at back to 2008, most of in 2011. eight of the 14 schools are in my state where there are very suspicious activities going on. have 10,500 schools approved by dhs

only be tried in federal court. he's never eligible for military commissions. a first year law student could convict this person. what i'm worried about is what does he know about future attacks? he's telling us that his brother was the bad guy, he's sort of just along for the ride. they had no international connections. guess what, he's down-playing his involvement. what i am suggesting is that we use the national security legal system where we can interview him without a lawyer to gather intelligence to prevent a future attack, rather than having to negotiate through his lawyer to get any information. jenna: but, if i could, senator, there seems to be a lot of discrepancy about some of the information come being out about this investigation. >> right. jenna: we've all seen it, you know, played out on the news and otherwise. i would like to drill down a little bit into an even change you just had about the boston terror attacks with the s*epbg o secretary of home land security january elt napolitano. we showed an older brother, this tkhaou owe, that is secretary napolitano. we just sh
in ten or 15 minutes. >> we learned today from the law enforcement press conference around 5:00 that suspect number two, when who has been identified as dzhokar tsarnaev escaped last night's shootout. his older brother died. that's confirmed as well. and we were told today at the press conference, i think much to people's astonishment that dzhokar tsarnaev escaped on foot. and how could he possibly escape the scene on foot and be far away, and now if that is the case and he is in the boat and just a square mile away, that it makes sense he found somewhere to hide in intervening hours. >> yeah. a couple of interesting things should be pointed out. one, first of all, it is really remarkable that he was not discovered last night. because the police presence that was on the ground in this very concentrated area was unlike anything i had ever seen. there were literally hundreds of officers and equipped in tactical outfits and flak jackets and armed with assault rifles going through the neighborhood. there were at least a half dozen different agencies responding, including state po
these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen
>> is this evident? >>> well more than the evidence is law enforcement and others have said at the federal state and local level and indeed from the region, we have an unprecedented level of law enforcement support and they are working very well. >> what is the process so far that helps you understand maybe for the materials and the level of complementty of the device -- complexity and the origin of the devise? >> i think i know what you are getting at. i can't comment on that aspect of that. what is important to say, what i would like to on behalf of the boston j.t. tf today, they say there is no known threat where we are conducting investigative activity and i want to put that out to the citizens and the city of boston and the commonwealth of massachusetts. >> do you know anything about the nature of device -- [inaudible] >> i am not going to be able to comment on the nature of the device right now. >> are they in custody right now? >> i'm not going to say who or who might not be in custody right now. >> is there one person from ocean avenue that are -- and [inaudible]. >>
to the apartments in revere. and federal law enforcement, this hour, an indicator he may not be of great investigative e was here on a student visa and didn't provide any hits on a phone terrorist watch list. >> megyn: thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. >> megyn: tiny pieces of shrapnel may provide biggest clues in the hint for the boston bomber, not long after the blast we heard another piece of key evidence would be the video of the explosions themselves, including the white smoke seen rising after the explosion, that tells us something. experts say it suggests that local products and not military grade explosives were likely used. also, the large pieces of the metal flying, we spot-shadowed them here and we now believe pressure cookers were used to build these bombs and the devices may have been placed in black duffle bags and possibly put on the ground or in the trash cans. my next guest is one of the foremost explosives experts. first working on an army-- as an army bomb disposal technician and special agent with the fbi, here you see some of the investigations in which he too
with armored soldiers or law enforcement officials with assault rifles. we've seen the blackhawks. we've learned the blackhawks are part of the massachusetts natural guard. they're used for transport. we've seen them in the last 15 or 20 minutes passing over. this is very active, and if this guy has been up as i have when i first started to pursue him at 11:00 last night, he's tired. he may be getting cornered in the final 30%. this is very dangerous. on top of that, we know from the controlled explosives that has happened in the last few hours that there are explosives out there. i just want to remind people. while it may look calmer in the scenes we're seeing today, the scene that i rolled up on here behind some 30 or 40 law enforcement officers, everything, fbi, swat, atf, boston police department, everything right into the blocks behind me about three or four streets, and it was aster phying a gun 5 as i've ever seen in iraq or afghanistan. this is a very violent individual, just like his brother. he is feeling perhaps more cornered and tired. it is imperative that they listen, th
and not come to the conclusion that law enforcement in general, the fbi in particular as the lead agency, did a terrific job in terms of responding, of gathering evidence, of controlling the scene, of dealing with all the outfall of all of this. and ultimately in very quick fashion identifying and arresting the perpetrators. >> we live in that 24 csi, ncis world where people believe it's so easy. you just pump the information into the computer and you have all the answers. >> that's unfortunate, megyn. and now comes the really difficult part, and the part of the investigation where people need to be patient, because the fbi and the rest of the intelligence and law enforcement community will turn inside-out to identify any possible additional suspects and subjects, to determine all the activities of these two guys. the net will be cast far and wide. and every lead will be uncovered. and we need to have some patience to allow them to do that. because this is not "csi," this is the real world. >> steve, thanks so much for being here. >> you're welcome. >> all the best to you. >> thanks, megyn. >
, breaking news tonight on two fronts. late word from two federal law enforcement officials that there is an arrest in connection, as erin said, with the poison letters sent to the u.s. president and the u.s. senator. new developments as well in the bombing case to tell you about. and obviously, it has been a roller coaster day for people here, emotionally and in terms of the facts of the story, it is not over yet. a short time ago, the fbi, again, postponed a news briefing that was originally pushed back from the 5:00 hour. it was supposed to be then at the top of the 8:00 hour. we don't know why this has been pushed back. we hope to learn more throughout the hour. >>> first, though, we want to check in with joe johns, on the deadly poison letter arrest. joe, you have some news on the arrest. what are you hearing, what is the latest? >> reporter: anderson, this is an individual from tupelo, mississippi, we're told, the home state of senator roger wicker. actually, his hometown, as well. he's one of the people who got one of the mailings. we know of two suspicious letters, a
that additional security is located at our substations throughout our service territory. we are working with law enforcement to determine how best to move forward with that increased security. >> reporter: police say on tuesday, someone with a high- powered rifle shot out five transformers at the metcalf substation in south san jose. minutes earlier someone climbed down a manhole to cut fiberoptic cables knocking out 911 service in gilroy. telephone lines were also disrupted at banks and other businesses. >> so i don't know what kind of sabotage but certainly it was an attempt to take down phones, data and power. >> reporter: pg&e said it did not get any specific threats at its other substations, but decided to ramp up security until further notice. >> we'll continue to provide that security and work with law enforcement until we have additional information. >> reporter: earlier they did -- what we do know tonight, juliette, is that they move in floodlights so we know they will be here 24/7. >> as far as 24/7 protection, who pays for the security? >> reporter: a lot of money. pg&e said they will
will prosecute this terrorist through our civil system of justice. underu.s. law, the united states citizens can not be tried rather in military commissions. martha: but house armed services commission buck mckeown argues that the white house should reconsider. he says, quote, it seems premature to declare that we will not treat tsarnaev as an enemy combatant since we don't know about his affiliations. clearly american citizens must be tried to civilian court, but the same citizen viciously attacked his countrymen, should be exploited for his intelligence value before any trial begins. that will be a debate that rages on for some time on this issue. we'll talk more later in the show with former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. bill: looking forward to that coming up here. meanwhile the feds want to talk to the widow of the suspect, tamerlan. she is mother of 3-year-old daughter between the two. the her lawyer said talks are underway with the feds how to proceed with that. he revealed on the last day tamerlan was home when his wife left for work. martha: well the officers who capturedded dzhokh
, law enforcement officials searched an apartment in northern boston massachusetts, police could be seen removing things from the residence, but nothing of interest was found. the home belonged to a 20-year-old man here on a student visa who sustained burns and was seen running from the blast. a senior law enforcement cautioned nbc news that the man is not a suspect and the interest in him is fading. >>> internet chatter has been ruled out. one terrorist group, the pakistani taliban, behind the failed times square bombing of 2010 have told police it is not responsible. and police are on the lookout for a man seen leaving the scene in a dark piece of clothing and a rental truck scene attempting to entry the area near the finish line. msnbc contributor joy reid and joining us from washington is nbc news justice department correspondent pete williams. pete, i'd like to go to you first, given what the president just said coming out and saying it is an act of terror does not come as much of a surprise, given the contours of this. but still something worth remarking on in terms of how the whit
with law enforcement sources is entertaining the idea that he may have been framed because he did write extensively on the internet about his conspiracy theories and signed off many of his misses i'm kevin curtis and i approve this message. that is language that is very similar to that contained in the letters that were sent to the president, senator or robert wicker and as well a local judge in tupelo, mississippi, it was written i'm k.c. and i aprof this message i believes his brother was framed. the fbi acted too quickly in this case. this happened right after the boston bombings, they were under a lot of pressure to come up with a suspect. he says they simply came up with the wrong one. bret? >> bret: okay, john. much more on this with the panel. a strange story. we will hear from paul kevin curtis. a hazardous materials team is investigating another possible tainted letter this time a military facility. senator harry reid said it is joint base anna cost i can't bowling. the two suspects in what canadian officials say was a plot to derail a passenger plane in court today. neither en
. the death toll still estimated at 5 to 15. >> one of the missing persons was a firefighter/law enforcement officer. i can tell you that individual has been found. he is in a hospital and he has some pretty serious injuries. i don't know the status whether it's critical, serious or whatever. but i was told he is in the hospital. has pretty serious injuries. there are still firefighters missing. >> police say there has been massive out pours from governor's office to feds and other agencies. in the nearby town of abbot we got this video in. 100 cots have been set up to take care of people who will be left homeless and grief counselors to deal with what's happening. >>> we are also now getting reports of lewding happening in the damaged neighborhoods. >> that is a significant concern to us. this is a community that we are going to do our absolute best to protect. and if that means offending folks by not letting them come home right away to keep them safe and neighborhood safe, we'll do that and apologize later. >> you are looking at video that was shot overnight. in terms of new pictures, we
. the hospitals and law enforcement both reporting that there were ball bearings inside this bomb. not some of the other projectiles like nails that you might find in other improvised explosive devices, particularly like those you see in afghanistan. what can the kind of bomb used yesterday tell you about who may have been behind this? >> as a general matter, willie, the type of bomb, the explosives, was this gun powder? was it some higher quality explosive like petn, was it hydrogen peroxide? that will give a load about the type of organizations behind this. the fact there were ball bearings in this is it clearly tells you that whoever did this was intending to maim and kill. this wasn't an attempt to just, you know, do some damage and scare some people. this was someone or a group trying to kill people. you know, beyond that, i think it's really dangerous to say ball bearings suggest domestic or international. the fact is whether it's al qaeda or domestic terrorist groups or hezbollah, all of these groups have used different sorts of motus operenda. it will be a different lead for investi
transportation, of schools, of businesses. no one is going in or out of this area except law enforcement. residents are sheltered in place. they are searching for this 19- year-old suspect that is still on the run. there is the latest picture we got of him this morning. that is 19-year-old dzhokhar tsamaev. he is considered armed and dangerous. he is one of two suspects believed to be behind the boston marathon bombings. these two suspects are brothers. let's take a look at the pictures that were released by authorities yesterday. the man on the left of your screen, you can see that we have put dead under his picture because this is the 26-year-old brother who was killed last night in a shootout with police. what we've learned about him this morning in the last hour or so that apparently when he was killed he had explosives on him and a trigger. that obviously raises the level of concern, because they believe if this 26-year-old brother is capable of that, obviously then this 19-year-old still on the run, very very dangerous at this time. considered in the neighborhood, possibly in that
to talked to a law enforcement agent. there was a pressure documenter lid that went up -- cooker lid that went up in the explosion. it landed on the rooftop. of this is critical. investigators so far have indicated they think one, if not two of the bombs was made out of a pressure cooker. finding another part of it and finding where it landed will be one more piece of what we know is a very complicated puzzle. pam? >> emily, since you've been there all week. and you are near a pretty big crime scene there. what about the businesses that are in that area? what is it like there? >> reporter: it's a really good question. when you look at the cars going behind me, it looks normal and then you go two more blocks down. it's completely shut off. you can't get to those businesses. we have the hotel that's very nearby. the perimeter is right on the edge of the perimeter of this crime scene. and the area that's blocked off and yesterday just to get back to my hotel after we were talking with you, i had to show them my photo i.d. i had to show them my hotel key before i was able to go. and our
is in custody. >> megyn: bill hemmer, thank you, friend. see you soon. law enforcement now pouring over images from the scene and you heard bill how they're asking anyone who was there to send them pictures. what you're about to see a one example of what authorities are looking at. you will he see a man cross the finish line and kiss his children and then you'll hear the first explosion and 12 seconds or so later you will hear the second blast. listen here. >> great job!. [explosion] >> we now know that three people were killed and just under 200 people were injured in those moments. the authorities will also be looking at this video where moments after the explosion, look, you see two large pieces more than two, but those two we highlighted for you, metal flying, we've spot-shadowed them here and pieces of evidence that they'll use to determine who may be behind the terrible event. coming up later in the show we're going through the video with one of the world's foremost explosives experts who has worked on nearly every major terror investigation in recent memory, including the 1983 bombing
, this is video taken over the area this morning and it shows law enforcement agents searching an apartment house near the waterfront in that city. you can see they are searching a duffel bag from that house and that search was prompted from a traffic stop when police pulled over somebody they described as auspicious driver. officers are trying to pull over suspicious people at the boston marathon. and that's video from the finish line as the twin bombs exploded yesterday afternoon. the blast went off in the middle of a huge crowd of spectators. three people are dead, at least 140 injured and one of those killed was an eight-year-old boy and still more than a dozen are listed in critical condition in boston hospital and their injuries are severed limbs and broken bones and broken eardrums. they are not speculating yet on a possible motive. >> this will be a combined federal state and local effort and it will be an on going investigation and it is a potential terrorist investigation. >> they were crude devices likely left along the marathon route. >> they are now pouring over video and they are se
on. they played games and watching video. something they normally don't get to do. >> boston law enforcements has been put to the test this week and turns out they have had some training for just this kind of response. training they received right here in the bay area. alameda couldn't operation urban shield is the largest such event in the nation. 7 news reporter heather has the story from treasure island. >> boston bombings man hunt are exactly what the alameda county sheriff's department had in mind when it created operation urban shield largest tactical training event to get law enforcements ready to respond to variety of scenario. it happens once a year in the east bay drawing teams from all across the nation and world. boston here it was and held own urban shield a few months ago. county sheriff says he hopes boston is yacht lice what they learn here. >> that's exactly why we designed urban shield so they could have command control and communication and major event that involves serious terrorism act. >> urban shield tried to create scenario that feel as realistic as po
of the attacks that he has not seen, but that law enforcement have briefed him on. >> it does seem to be pretty clear that this suspect took the backpack off, pickup truck it down, did not react when the first explosion went off, and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. so pretty -- pretty clear about his involve., anment, pretty chg frankly. >> who wants him tried as a enemy combatant? >> senator john mccain and pete king, to name a few. >> are there other explosives throughout? where did they get their radicalization? are there imams we should be meeting with? who did his brother meet with when in chechnya? the public safety exception will expire in 48 hours and then he can lawyer up and stay quiet. >> that's what happened to the nigerian that tried to blow up the plane on christmas eve. within 10 hours he was read his miranda rights. critics on capitol hill say the intelligence community was unable to fine him for information as to how the empty developed. the underwear bomber eventually convicted and in super max prison in colorado. harris? >> harris: federal
're sharing it with other law enforcement agencies, just trying to see if anybody knows this person and there is to doubt a strategy to that. but they don't want to get the information or any pictures out of the public yesterday to perhaps clue this person in on where they're at in the investigation. so we can't independently verify any of those other pictures that are floating out there and i can tell you that the authorities have not officially released any pictures. >> has there been a sense of frustration from the authorities, scott, because of all of the, you know, head fakes and misinformation that has gotten out, some of the early stuff that's been out, also because of potential media that's made it easy to make these pictures go around very quickly. >> well, i'm sure there's a great deal of frustration. we've with he got the fbi's statement that came midafternoon yesterday after the false reports of an arrest. that was pretty strongly worded that said that basically admonished the media to vet your information better. that said that the reports of an arrest were erroneous an
. this couple's personal grudge may to be blame for a series of small town killings that put law enforcement on a nationwide high alert. we haven't been updating this case of the texas prosecutors who have been killed because we have been so focused on everything that's happening there have been major divoms. we will bring them to you. as our nation mourns the despicable attacks on the boston marathon, we are seeing a growing surge of prism o. patriotism in this country. turned their own losses in the wake of the september 11th attacks of a powerful message of strength and hear how they among some others in this country now believe these terrorists messed with the wrong people. >> a little bit earlier in the bobby statute. the name is martin richard. of course martin richard was one of the 8-year-old boy, one of the three who lost his life here on monday. with the spark miles card from capital one, bjorn earns unlimited rewas for his small business take theseags to room 12 please.

or possibly change the laws. what's expected here on the boston marathon bombing investigation when i see you next. kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. >>> the man accused of mailing a letter containing ricin to president obama is expected back in court. paul kevin curtis has denied any involvement sent to the president or other letters sent to a senator or judge. his attorneys say there's little evidence connecting him to the letters but curtis's family says he does suffer from mental illness. >>> we're hearing the frantic 911 calls made from a deadly explosion at a fert light ez -- fertilizer plant in west, texas. >> there's been an explosion at my house. all of the windows are completely in. >> at least 14 people were killed in last wednesday's explosion and 200 more were injured. ten of those killed were first responders. >> listen, to me. the station just totally exploded. i have a nursing home and an ammo station and i need as much help that you can sent. >> some were able to return home. howf, they have strict curfews and limited water -- however, they have strict curfews
